Chicago appeals FAA fine

The city of Chicago has appealed a $33,000 civil penalty imposed by the FAA stemming from the destruction of Meigs Field in March 2003. The FAA requires a 30-day notice be sent before an airport can be closed.

City officials claim a 30-day notice was “not practicable” and the park district, which oversaw the airport, had cancelled its lease.
